I am also considering getting them a Furby Boom each as well, as all this stuff is from eBay/Amazon and will have enough tesco vouchers to double up and get them for £15 each smile

I think that's loads.

That's plenty of course smile but I couldn't resist furbys for £15!

You don't want to know what my two have

catgirl1976fucker Sat 26-Oct-13 14:12:20

Hmmm

DH has decreed DS can only have one present each year

I thought that was mean and 2 / 3 were ok.

Your list seems plenty to me!

Have the asked for anything specifically that isn't on there?

OurMrsReynolds Sat 26-Oct-13 14:29:30

They've not asked for anything hmm this is just stuff I know that they will like and will get played with. If you think this is loads, you don't want to know what they have had in the past. The most expensive item for DD1 is the bean bag chair, for DD2 it's the playmobil house.

I had a furby years ago and loved it grin

catgirl1976fucker Sat 26-Oct-13 14:31:19

Are you asking if it's too much / not enough / just right / a good mix?

OurMrsReynolds Sat 26-Oct-13 14:33:08

I don't know catgirl i know it's enough i suppose (will have to be!) a good mix?

catgirl1976fucker Sat 26-Oct-13 14:34:25

Looks like a good mix to me smile

Lots of different things

I think they will be very happy on the big day smile

OurMrsReynolds Sat 26-Oct-13 14:41:58

Thanks smile

I just find it difficult how to tell - this will be the first year when we will have bought everything outright, I used to rely on credit and catalogues to get everything and it spiralled as these things tend to do. The girls are great though and they don't expect loads of stuff which makes it easier. I know people do spend less and I know people supposed friends think I'm a skinflint but such is life

catgirl1976fucker Sat 26-Oct-13 14:50:44

I think it sounds like a lovely list for 2 lovely sounding girls

OurMrsReynolds Sat 26-Oct-13 14:59:58

FreakoidOrganisoid Sat 26-Oct-13 15:13:34

Is that just from you or is that from FC too?

OurMrsReynolds Sat 26-Oct-13 15:44:57

It's all the presents I will be buying from Us and FC

FreakoidOrganisoid Sun 27-Oct-13 13:25:19

Looks like a good amount to me smile

Marne Sun 27-Oct-13 14:05:36

Looks good to me, I try and buy a few things that will occupy then Xmas day ( whilst I'm cooking ), enough books to last a few months, something they will play with all year and a couple novelty cheap items that will be fun for a short time. I have bought the. Dd's quite a bit but all has been half price other than their main presents.

princesscupcakemummyb Sun 27-Oct-13 14:11:40

looks good enough to me smile

OurMrsReynolds Sun 27-Oct-13 14:47:35
